MOOseum Opens this October
GERMANTOWN, MD -- All that remains of the once 350 acre James and Macie King farm (est. 1913) is the 1930s period dairy barn, which has been restored to become the center of a historic center known as the MOOseum, set to have its grand opening this October.
The mission of the MOOseum is "dedicated to interpreting the rich history of the farms, the families, and related organizations and businesses of Montgomery County, Maryland." Through live exhibits, lectures, artifacts, multimedia presentations, and interactive projects, the MOOseum aims to build greater understanding about America's dairy heritage and to "bridge the gap between producer and consumer."
The grand opening will take place on Saturday, October 23, and the public is invited to attend the official ribbon cutting at 5:30p.m. followed by a wine and cheese reception. MOOsic will be provided by the New Southern Cowtippers, who begin playing at 5:00 p.m.
